    DS just turned 2 and only in the last few months has worked out how to use a spoon and fork still extremely messy though and he still prefers to use his hands to eat. As long as your DS can do it messy or not, then I wouldn't say it's an issue

    DD is 17mo and it depends on what she's eating. She has weetbix for breakfast and I don't let her anywhere near it because she is useless with a spoon lol! But she loves to use a fork to pick up her vegies and meat and usually gets it in her mouth, although it takes much longer than if she just used her fingers, which means she gets bored by the end and doesn't eat it all. Sometimes I pop some food in her mouth while she's distracted!

    As for the food not staying on the plate, we went though this a few months ago and the easiest thing for me to do was to just put the food on the highchair table. Cleaning mess off the table is much better than out of hair and clothes!! I still served her food on a plate but as soon as she picked it up I would take if off her and put the food on the table. Only took her a couple weeks to stop picking up her plate. Good luck!
